This term the students in Year 3/4D have been learning how to write persuasive texts. We would like you to read the persuasive writing below and see if we can persuade you to play sport.
Children are all different. They prefer different things. Some kids like to play sport but others do not.
Sport is good for kids because if you want to be fit it is essential. It helps with brain development which is vital for school.
Sport is dangerous because you could get injured. Also some people don’t like sport.
Overall I think that it is not vital that kids should play sport. Kids should have a choice whether or not they should play sport.
I believe that we should all play a sport.
It is important to play sport because you can learn new things and new skills.
You should play sport because it is healthy and fit for you and if you don’t you will go overweight.
Swimming is a good sport because it helps your lungs and your breathing.
Last of all, you learn sportsmanship and teamwork in the sport that you are doing.
Make a change to your health and make your body fit.
I strongly agree that all children should have to play sport.
Firstly if you don’t play sport you will not burn calories and that will make it hard to sleep.
Secondly if you do play sport you will get much more fit. If you look at the footy players they have super muscles.
Thirdly if you don’t play sport you will get lazy and that will lead to you getting fat.
Be smart and play sport more often.

Secondly some people say that they don’t do sport because they are bad at it but you have to try because practice makes perfect.
Lastly in sport you can learn new things and skills. Sport develops teamwork, sportsmanship and most of all it is fun!
In conclusion sport gives you health, exercise, sportsmanship and it is fun so you have to try!

If you don’t play sport you will be fat and not fit.
Secondly if you don’t play sport you won’t learn things or meet new people.

First of all if you don’t play sport you become lazy and you become unhealthy.
Secondly by playing sport you can learn new skills in sports like kicking, throwing and passing.

I think that all children should play sport. These are some reasons why.
Firstly, kids have to play sport because if they don’t they will turn into a couch potato. Kids play sport to keep fit and healthy.
Secondly, kids need to sleep at night. So if you play sport you get hungry and if you eat you get sleepy and then you sleep.
Finally, when you do sport you get nice and warmed up so you’re ready for the day.
Lastly, I play sport every Wednesday and every Friday and it’s a lot of fun. So you have to agree that all children should play sport.
